Drinking On the Skinnies: Brought To You By Mrs. Monologues

I'm pretty sure I have some of the best Loyals out there. Thanks so much for all the lovin' that you showed Mama PattyAnn on yesterday's guest post. I knew I could count on you all!

Next up? Mrs. Monologues. If you're not drinking from the same Kool-Aid as the Mrs., you are seriously missing out. She used to be one of those fluffy bloggers. You know the kind I'm talking about. But then she went through a bit of a midlife blog crisis and let's just say, thank god for that. She's back and better than ever in a wine-induced haze. I love me some Mrs. Monologues and you should, too. If for no other reason than she is totally awesome and is sharing the most delish drink recipe. Why is it to awesome? Because it includes the word Skinny. And, well, it's full of alcohol. You're welcome, Loyals.

Hey y'all, Mrs. Monologues here taking over AP's blog for the day. Apparently she took a sip of the crazy juice because she is letting me take over her blog for the day. If you didn't know, Ashley is my virtual drinking partner in crime and is also my favorite mommy blogger out there (fact, she is awesome like woah - but obvi, you know this since you follow her blog). Because we both love a good drink and it is party week at Casa de Carrots, a drink recipe seemed like the right fit.

While I love a good cocktail, most of my drinking calories each week are dedicated to wine (duh), so anything outside of that needs to be on the skinnies. This is where Mr. (my better half, a.k.a. accountant king, a.k.a mr. drink masta') has come to the rescue to create the perfect skinny lemondrop. 

The Skinny Lemondrop

Ingredients: 2 1/2 oz. - Citrus Vodka (we use Skyy)
2 1/2 oz - Lemon juice
1 heaping teaspoon - Sweet and Low

Put in shaker, add ice, shake and serve. Repeat.

So there you have it, a delicious drink that won't go at battle with your thighs later on. 
Ashley -- I'm drinking tons of these in your and baby C's honor this week!

Do you have a skinny cocktail recipe?

Mrs. Monologues

Mayjah thanks to The Mrs. for a little on-the-spot guest posting for me. Like I said earlier, if you're not drinking from the same Kool-Aid, er Skinny Lemondrops, as Mrs. Monologues, you are sincerely missing out! 

Happy Tuesday, Loyals!

  1. You're hilarious! And thanks for the good recipe to share!

  2. Thanks for the great recipe! It's exactly what I needed today considering my girls threw a dance party at 330 am! Lol!! Is 10 am too early to start?? ;)

  3. Looks delicious.

    Oh, and my skinny drink recipe is thinking about working out while I'm pinot. I should clarify - not both at the same time, that is. Voila!

  4. Hey Mrs.! I'm still waiting for you to tell me to ride my bike over there to enjoy some of those with you. Holla at your girl!

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you for commenting the other day on my new ink! I'm so glad you did because now I have a new blog to read! :) I love when lurkers "come out of the closet" so I can add them to my reader and have new bloggy friends. Thanks for the recipe- I'm having company in town this weekend and I was looking for something fun to make!

  6. And PS, I'm totally blog stalking you now (duh!) and I clicked on your facebook page, only to find out we live all of approximately 5 miles from one another. How ironic?!

  7. Nice! I'm so saving this recipe!
